Madmax13 has been playing for 16 years and has worked as a Marshall, he introduced me to it about 6 or 7 months ago and iv'e been hooked ever since! I have not been able to play since Jan tho cos I badly broke my right wrist and had to have it pinned together but its on the mend and I should be back on the fields as of next month.

In the meantime I have just been doing a lot of research and study into the sport and markers!

Me and my mate moved into a new room and noticed a guy walking towards it.
we hid and when he came in blasted him
then ran all the way back to the base to tell our mates :D

I've been playing since 1990 when I was in the navy and as a day out a group of us went to a local site. Sinse then i have been playing on and off and i am still waiting to experiance my first elimination.:eek:
Only kidding I didn't get an elimination at all the first day but thenh again we were using old sheridens and balls were £1 for ten I only managed to go through about thirty balls. cheapest day out i had ever had. I twasn't until we returned a month later did i experiance of taking out another player.:D

my first day was at mayhem peterborough in 89.i went with a guy from work who at that time was a veteran.
I thought that because as a lad i had shot and owned most types of gun i would be the man to stop,i mean i was wearing a balaclava.
first couple of games i was **** .
then i tagged someone with my pgp and was totally hooked.:cool:

My first elimination (that I remember, not being as old as Alien has its advantages:D ) was at worsley on the old hay bale field with a Splat Master hit a guy on the hand from 40 feet away ( I was 16 years old at the time (and I'm 30 now) I was hooked from that first game and never recovered (14 years and still playing ouch my knees;) ) I wonder what advances in tech will occur over the next 14 years? the super semi's of today may be the Splat Masters of tomorrow :eek: and Alien will be really old ;)

I played my first game about 10 years ago, I was 13 and was playing at Top Gun, (was an old hospital and was the best site I ever played, well it was my first time and your memory always is hazy)

We played with the Pirahanna Pumps, and From the very first whistle i was hooked. I loved it and I don't think i have ever looked back.

My first elimination however, I am not sure. Have I ever eliminated anyone?

I think it was either on the first day and i got a lucky shot in. Or it came many years later (when i had saved enough to go again) and we were on the bridge field, I crawled through the undergrowth and lit up a guy in the tower looking else where, Very satisfying.

First Elim

Let's see, my first elimination..........hmm. I had played 7 or 8 times, for countless hours nonetheless, and came up dry. Until one day, approximately seven years ago, in a walk on game, I finally got my first elimination, with a SL68 II, compliments of a goofy looking kid named Monning,...... Marring,...... Manning, I can't really remember his name, but that's not important. :D Ok, that was a fabricated story just to try to make Manning26 feel better. Anyway, I actually got mine the first time I went out to play. On the way to play, my brand new SL 68 II sprung a leak. Not knowing a thing about paintball equipment, I neglected to check the O ring on the tank. Anyway, I ended up using a PGP. At the end of the first game, approximately 4 hours from the beginning, I snuck up on two guys behind a brush pile. I could hear them talking about where they thought I was. Then they counted......1......2.....3. That's when they popped up and shot about 60 degress in the wrong direction. I shot one of them in the arm, and the other in the mask. I was hooked from that point on. Happy to say, I've had 10's of 12's of eliminations since that glorious day seven years ago.

My first time been lit up :

It was on a capture the flag from the enemy base on a COLD day in December of 99, i think it was like the 22nd or something. So anyway, me and my teammates where attacking this fort. And all of a sudden bang. OUCH!!!!!!!! I was tagged right on the knuckle of my middle finger. It stung like bloody hell, and the cold didn't make it much better either.

I didn't start playing paintball properly till this last year (no money before then).

My First Elimination:

God knows. Cuz when its 40 people with infernos,you've no idea if it was your shot if there is more then u firing at him. My most glorious tag though was when I did the 'old "come round back and pretend your the enemy" trick. I had to put up with my own team firing at me, but once i had the enemy fooled i lit six of em up, and slid back into the bush to grab the flag. Muhahahhaha
